Z9 - the most powerful Nikon ever


Subject detection from deep learning. Automatic. Simultaneous.

A breakthrough algorithm developed using deep learning enables the Z 9 to automatically detect and track the world’s largest range of subjects3—people, dogs, cats, birds, cars, motorcycles, bicycles, trains and planes—in stills and video with no menu changes.

Nikon Z9


Keeps up with the smallest, fastest subjects.

AF and AE calculations are made at 120 cycles per second with rapid, constant communication between the lens and the camera through the Z mount. Even small, erratic subjects like birds in flight are tracked with ease.

Enhanced Eye AF for people, pets and birds.

Eye Detection AF automatically tracks the eyes of people, dogs, cats and birds (and similar creatures) even when they’re small in the frame, covered by hair, glasses or goggles, right-side up or upside down.

Nikon Z9


3D Tracking + Subject Detection. A new dimension of AF.

The power of Nikon’s acclaimed 3D Tracking is now available with deep learning subject detection. Effortlessly lock onto fast-moving subjects and track them moving toward you, away from you and everywhere in between.

Nikon Z9


Create your own focus areas.

Sometimes, you need precise control of where your Z 9 should focus. With 20* custom Wide-Area AF (C1/C2) options, you can define the shape of your focus area. Your custom focus area will even work simultaneously with Subject Detection and Eye-Detect AF.

Nikon Z9


Focus in the dark. Go down to -8.5 EV.

Subject detection and AF works all the way down to -6.5 EV. Activate Starlight Mode, and focus all the way down to -8.5 EV. And since you’ll be spending more time in the dark, the Z 9’s buttons are illuminated.

Blazing fast 120 fps stills.

Nikon Z9


Go from zero to 120 fps in the press of a shutter

To capture moments you may never have seen before, the Z 9 captures 45.7-megapixel stills at an action-freezing 30 fps and press-ready 11-megapixel stills at an insanely fast 120 fps—all with full AF and AE performance and no blackout.

Nikon Z9


Keep your finger down. 1,000-image buffer capacity.

With a seemingly bottomless buffer, the Z 9 shoots continuously for more than 1,000 frames at 20 fps* as full resolution High-Efficiency RAW or JPEG (L) fine files.

*When using the recommended memory card: ProGrade Digital CFexpress™ Type B 2.0 Cobalt 1700R.

Nail the shot you missed.

When shooting fast action, Pre-Release Capture* records the instant right before you take your shot, capturing a moment that might otherwise have been missed. Give your reaction time a boost.

**Available in C30 and C120 modes.


The fastest write speeds. Dual CFexpress Type B.

Under a newly designed latching door are two matched slots optimized for high-performance CFexpress Type B cards. The slots are independent from each other, so you can load cards with different write speeds—including XQD cards.

Nikon Z9


Finally, an electronic shutter you can trust.

The electronic shutter in the Z 9 achieves the world’s most minimal rolling-shutter distortion2, eliminating the need for a mechanical shutter. Shoot at shutter speeds up to 1/32,000 second in complete silence, with no shutter vibration and no concerns about shutter wear.

Nikon Z9


Silent mode. Become invisible.

When you need to be invisible, Silent Mode turns off menu sounds and VR Lock and minimizes lens drive noises. And since the Z 9 does not have a mechanical shutter, you can shoot without a shutter click—or plug in headphones so only you can hear the simulated shutter sound.*

*A simulated shutter sound and release timing indicator can be set as desired.

Nikon Z9


Groundbreaking 8K video.
